What's the best type of grazing grass?
I'm probably not going to get a horse on my property due to the home owners association :cry: but just out of curiosity, if i did get a horse, they can't eat St. Augistine grass, right? Which kind of grass would i have to put in for the best grazing? Thanks!
What part of the country are you in? (I'm assuming South, perhaps TX, since you mentioned St. Augustine).
Florida-- also, can horses eat dollar weed?
As for dollar weed, I don't see it on the harmful plant list, but I don't know if they'll eat it.
Ok, thanks so much!

If you head out to your local TSC, they have a mix in their yard/gardening section called "horse grass" or something like that. I have no idea what kind of mix it is, but we use it in our front pastures and front lawn, so the horses can be hand grazed.
I'd think Bermuda - I believe that's what is in southern states. We have orchard, timothy, clover, rye, kentucky blue here, but FL is much warmer.
Our pasture is mostly native prairie grasses. I know there is some clover, some alfalfa, but for the most part its buffalo grass.
